“Words cannot describe this beautiful, secluded garden paradise.”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I and our daughter and son-in-law stayed here for a week in July. The beauty of this property was so much more than we could have imagined! We were very comfortable in this charming stone house. Right across the road are two very lovely beaches and the water was so refreshing that we spent quite a bit of time in the waves. There is so much to see and do in Sao Miguel and this Caloura location is very convenient for exploring the rest of the island- although one could have a very tranquil vacation without leaving this property! We feel very blessed that we were able to spend a week at Casa das Pedras.

“A little Slice of Heavon:)”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This Estate is just AMAZING> I went with my family, and there were actually several rentals on the property, chickens who lay eggs, a house dog, vegetable garden, a gardener to go along with it, a tiki snack / bar next door, and several outdoor eating areas that looked over the gorgeous beaches. All of it was ours to relax and enjoy for the week. The Realtors Nick & Chris were so helpful, and laid back. We seriously found our little slice of paradise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! :)

“Secluded paradise steps from the beach, great for the whole family!”

My family (husband and young son), as well as my parents, stayed at this villa in Agua de Pau in late May 2015. You cannot capture with a photo how beautiful the property and surrounding scenery is. Situated in a small village, steps from the beach, on a secluded property of lush gardens, it is like you are in your own personal paradise. The property's gardener and resident dog Baixa are also there to keep you company. We were lucky enough to get some farm fresh eggs, potatoes and onions from the property. We also successfully cooked on the outdoor BBQ while enjoying some local wine among the growing grapes.
There are two beaches literally right outside the property down several flights of stairs. My son enjoyed many hours jumping in the waves. Although a little cold for myself, there were several locals swimming in the water.
The property is conveniently located off the newer highway, although a car is highly recommended to explore the rest of the island.
There is a hotel within walking distance where you can dine, as well as another restaurant only a few km away in Caloura. However we also dined in nearby cities with ease.
All in all this is a great rental villa if you are looking to relax and enjoy nature's beauty. The villa is equipped with all the modern conveniences you need and has adequate space for a larger family. Highly recommend!

“Paradise on the Caloura Coast!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

people found this review helpful

We had the fortune of staying at Casa das Pedras in July of 2014 when my family of 4 (2 boys ages 9,11 myself and my husband) travelled to Sao Miguel with my sister in law, brother in law and their 13 year old daughter. We knew we booked the right accomodations as we took the turn towards the stunning property, overlooking the most incredible ocean beach on the island! The house was perfectly appointed-with a fantastic kitchen filled with every utensil and cooking gadget neeeded, two comfortable bedrooms on the main floor and a large lofted bedroom upstairs with a fourth alcove bedroom perfect for my niece. The house looks out on amazing farm land with tomatoes, watermelon, fruit trees, and a chicken and bunny coop. We were able to take any of the produce that was ripe, and were thrilled to play with the resident dog Baixa, whom we wanted to take home with us! The best part of the house was it's location--literally at the end of a road STEPS away from a fantastic beach, where we boogie boarded and relaxed after our days of touring the island. We appreciated the proximity to the Hotel Caloura, where we enjoyed two dinners and a delicious lunch at the snack bar near the pool, and we walked 1.5 miles to the Port to eat at the local restaurant that served the BEST fish we have ever had-well worth the little hike!
Chris and Nick were wonderful proprietors--available for any extra needs and suggestions regarding meals and activities. The highlight of our trip was when they convinced a local band, who was playing in a concert outside the gates of our house, to allow my brother in law to play Saxophone in their band until 2 am in front of hundreds of fans!! It was absolutely surreal and a true once in a lifetime experience. We had a fantastic vacation and would recommend this location to families who want to feel like they are really living in paradise!
